  1. Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    I always thought they were noisy. On very smooth roads they were quiet enough, but any rough surface and they were just obnoxiously loud. I thought it was just me, though. My wife rents cars often for travel in her job, and recently I drove two of them on a particular road where my car just...

    Long time lurker here. All of your posts have helped me tremendously over the years, even if I never commented before. Thanks, much! Anyways, after loving and losing my B5 (2001), I bought a used 2010 B6 early last month. It has 20,000 miles on it and I like it a lot. Heck, after 20 years...

    I changed those 20-25k miles ago, not even two years, and I feel the warping coming back, normal? V6 2003, I installed the brembo OE solid faced from the group buy with some PBR/Axxis Deluxe Plus pads

  9. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hello, I am new to these forums as a participant, but have been reading all your advice for the past year as I bought an 06 Passat 2.0T in May 2006. In fact, it was the discussions on this board which swayed me into buying the Passat over the A4. So far I love the car very much. Anyway, I...
  10. B5 Garage
    Guys - I am thinking about doing the 20k service on my 05 Passat TDI. However, I am a little hesitant as I don't want to mess anything up. I have changed the oil on the car since I got it and I am pretty good at it. Also, I think I can change the cabin & air filters no problem. The 2 things that...

    Call dealer today to schedule the 5K service for my new Jetta wagon & they told me that they stop doing that since 2002, and it just surprised me, because I have also my other B5.5 that I bought it new as well back of Feb'06 that I thought will have the same free maintenance service like my...

    I am about ready to pick up a 99 GLX with 20k miles on it. It's been garaged and raised in the high desert... Dry climate. Do I need to make any special considerations for the timing belt being replaced sooner than usual? Little paranoid about T-belts.. Lost one on a honda a while back...

    I'm quite close to 20k service (wow - it was 10k not so long ago...). What to expect? How much they charge? Thanks.

    Since about 15k miles of ownership, my sunroof has had a high pitched squeal on opening if you didn't manually pull the shade back first. The sunroof was lubricated at its 20k mile service by the dealer with no effect. Since the problem was not apparent if I pulled the shade manually, then I...
  16. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    My 01.5 passat just passed 20K and I'm getting some squeal from my rear passenger brake. I haven't pulled the wheel off yet but it looks like I've got a good bit of pad left. Also can feel a bit of pulsing grab (light) on occasion. I'm going to pull the wheel off and check for a build up of...
